Jaimee Motley moved from her family restaurant to San Francisco and began working at RN74. She fell in love with wine and started off working harvests before finally accepting a winemaker position at Wind Gap/Pax Cellars in 2015. She now joins the burgeoning group of winemakers that are making their own wines within Pax Cellars in Sebastopol.

These are her first releases, it is likely that subsequent offers will be on allocation such is the demand.

Matthew Rorick grafted what was originally Graciano planted in 2002 to Mondeuse.  Matthew, in addition to farming one of the most exciting vineyards in California, is also the owner/winemaker for the cult brand Forlorn Hope.  Rorick Heritage Vineyard is gorgeous, set in the hills of Calaveras County at 2000 feet elevation.  Aspects of the Mondeuse block shift from southeast to south and the soil is comprised of limestone with a top layer of schist.  The grapes were foot crushed with a long press cycle to pick up flavor and texture.  Fermented in stainless steel and aged on the lees in neutral oak.  The wine went through native primary and secondary fermentation. Bottled unfined and unfiltered in February 2019, with under 20 ppm of total S02.
